> For us, running a couple of SpiceDB instance on a couple of pods having 1CPU / 1GB RAM each is probably more than enough until we scale as a company. whether this works for you or not is going to be highly dependent on your traffic pattern the contention that happens is the go runtime; if you have really bursty traffic you'll have so many more goroutines than cores that the runtime can't get them enough cpu time to finish before client-side timeouts start kicking in. but that's something that should be fairly easy to measure once you're up and running
